The other evening, my younger children asked me to read them a book of nursery rhymes before bed. I naturally obliged because not only did I know how much fun and laughter they would bring my children, but also I knew those rhymes brought back sweet memories from my childhood.

The week after Spring Break is always a hard transition in my household. It is like a taste of summer hours - we stay outside until dark, go to bed late, and get up at 7:30am (which is late in our house!).
